Back from Overnighter #3!

The third and final overnight trips are done! In addition to the usual hiking, biking, climbing, and caving options, an additional group went to to NRAO (National Radio Astronomy Observatory) and controlled a 40 foot telescope to observe hydrogen emission in our universe.

Tonight’s lecture was given by Dr. James Berry, Professor of Anesthesiology, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. In “Recycling Pharmaceuticals: Economics and the Environment,” Dr. Berry examined both the economic and environmental benefits of reducing the emission of “used” pharmaceuticals into the air and water using a cost/benefit analysis.
